My versatile voice turns heads with a warm, rich, sincere, genuine, honest and unforgettable delivery. My conversational voice is inviting, distinct, sophisticated, sensible and elegant. Styles include everything from approachable mom, devoted friend, soothing caretaker, high-energy salesperson, sultry tease, and fun-loving girl-next-door, to straightforward executive, authoritative professional, communicative teacher, engaging spokesperson, refined leader, informative narrator, and much more. Specialties include TV and radio commercials, business, e-learning, narration, technical, medical, and IVR/on hold. I am also able to voice characterizations from air-head teen, to evil alien queen, bringing life to animation and video game projects With extreme versatility and able to take direction well, my delivery (not just your script) tell the story.
